Would not surprise me. He will probably find a way to complain about the Vikes.

I live up in MN. All indicators are Farve is tight with many on this team, esp Rice, Harvin, Peterson, and Jared Allen. I thiink he won't be back, too much physically and emotionally on him and is family.

Crucify me but I have nothing but respect for Favre. 40-years old and the guy still plays at an extremely high level.

IMO, he's done and as a football fan I'll miss him.

Favre: Not ready to decide yet
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal (ProFootballTalk)


Sunday's NFC Championship was so special, we didn't want to sully our game recap with any Brett Favre retirement talk yet.

So we will now.

Favre wearily stepped his postgame podium Sunday night, bruises and cuts above his head, facing reporters after another season-ending interception.

He was asked if he was going to take a few months to decide his future.

"I wouldn't say months, I know people are rolling their eyes or will roll their eyes," Favre said. "In a situation like this, I really don't want to make a decision right now based solely on what's happened. Because I do know the year could have not gone any better aside from us not going to Miami.

"I really enjoyed the guys. I just wonder if I can hold up, especially after a day like today, physically and mentally. That was pretty draining," Favre said.

FOX's Jay Glazer said Sunday that Favre's teammates are convinced he'll retire. But they don't really know, just like we don't know.

"I am going to go home a couple days, and talk it over with the family," Favre said.

He was asked if he feels like he needs to go out on top before leaving the game.

"I'd love to win the Super Bowl, who wouldn't . . . but I know I'm going out on top, one way or the other. I didn't feel like I had anything to prove coming in. If there were doubters out there, maybe I served notice to them.

"But my goal is to get to Miami," Favre said, the finality of the loss perhaps just setting in. "And obviously that's not going to happen."

Certainly not ready to crucify ya ( :D ), but I'll just say that I used to love to watch him play back in the day - especially when he was wreaking havoc on Dallas and San Fran. But, his antics these last few years have been childish and, well, just plain self-centered. He has spoiled my opinion of him. -Joos

Why not? His last pass for every team he's played for has been an INT. He should be consistent. :lol:

Awesome player, awesome competitor.

He is such a gambler out there though. That last pick was just terrible. My eight year old saw he could have run for 7-8 yards. He needs to pump the ball and take off and give his team a chance to win. Throwing that ball against the grain was just terrible. I sort of feel bad for him and feel that he got his just deserts for all the self-centered crap he's pulled lately.

I can only speak for myself, but I have a very hard time feeling the least bit bad for a guy who will make $25 million dollars over the course of two years while playing a game that he absolutely loves for a living. :wink:

As for the original question to this thread...

I'm hoping far, far, far away. I really don't feel like hearing about him 24/7 for another full offseason. It's mind-numbing to say the least. Unfortunately, I'm fairly sure Favre will drag it out as long as possible in order to receive the attention that he obviously and desperately craves year after year.

:Agree

Doing it once is one thing, but retiring and coming back twice in a row takes a special kind of douchebaggery.

One things for sure in my mind...a concrete decision either way won't be made until late August when the Vikings break training camp. I am of the opinion that his wish-washiness was a calculated ploy to avoid training camp with the Vikings this past year and with the Jets the year before that. He'll let Tarvaris and Sage battle it out in the heat of Mankato and then will decide whether or not to show up on his white stallion for the 3rd preseason game (again).

he needs to go away... it was nice, fun and exciting but the ending reminds me why I'm over him...

1st Ballot Hall of Famer. Unfortunately the way he treated Green Bay Management, team, and fan base he became a 1st Ballot Halll of fame Douche Bag as well. And can Joe Buck give him a BJ already and be done with it. I thought he was going to cry every time the Saints hit him last night.

The Jets season was just a way to get the one year out of the way to get to the Vikings...

Unless he declares very soon that he is returning, I hope that he retires and stays retired. I've had enough of the annual offseason saga of whether he'll return.

Come on, what would an off-season be like without the annual "is Brett coming back or will he retire" drama?

I hear Cleveland is in need of a good QB. NFL draft (http://www.topnflnews.com/) :lol:coach outlet (http://www.topcoachoutlet.com/)

But I think, Farve is un believable- love him or hate him .

i hate jet farve but he will be back. that pick sums up his career well. he is a great qb but the most reckless qb i have ever seen. we criticize ben for never letting plays die but ben isnt half as reckless as farve is and farve is an old man!! he will be back though we will have the usual farve bs in the offseason. he loves the drama and hates training camp
